I am in negotiations with a domain seller over a premium domain name primarily although I am also interested in the many pages of already indexed content which is a bonus for me to be honest.
I asked the vendor if he would accept to transfer the site but he replied "we can not transfer the site because we paid for it separately. Yet it's a simple Wordpress theme with nothing much in it. If you want you can copy-paste all the articles/content from it if you want to keep any - we will not use the content but we want to keep the theme itself."
So my question is how can I transfer all the content so it keeps the indexing in Google and the PR of the domain intact, backlinks etc. whilst leaving the wordpress theme where it is?
EDIT: I am thinking now a second part to the question which is would you guys recommend me to just ditch the content and start again as it's not amazing but is readable? The domain in question is a premium car insurance domain with a .us extension (which is perfect for what I want to target). Would it make more sense to just start out building it up from scratch and if so are there any other factors to think of I haven't considered?
